How long can the felt last


Started my shed project, got all the old off, repaired the rotten, covered in felt and about half of the shingles are on. Will not be able to get to the rest for a week or so. How long does the felt last? We are expecting some rain this week but not alot.

Thanks
CK

Should be fine for 30 days. I would like to see it replaced before you shingle, though.

The rain and sun will cause it to warp/buckle. This can be seen if you roof over it. Buy another roll and some more staples, you will be happier in the long run.

If you didn't finish a side water will run behind your shingles between your felt.

Ya, why no staples?????

I could see the buttons working, but you would have to use quite a few. I have walked 12/12 pitches with cheap tarpaper using duo fast staples.

I have not seen where they send out buttons to put on tarpaper, but I have used it for housewrap over buildrite.

I would be concerned with a high wind blowing it off.

It simple, if you leave it out like you said it will blow off, unlike buttons. also buttons make it easier to walk on and will not rip it or indent it like a hammer tacker can. its much more tight and makes it lay flatter.
Then again thats just my personal preference as a professional roofer.

Even if using tin tabs? I always kinda liked hammer tackers with tin tabs because they were faster than tab nails and laid down pretty smooth unless I bent them up.
